  • Thanks for your great job in making my car look new again. I am very pleased with the work and the efficiency of your company. I hope I won't need your service again for a long while.

  • Absolutely superb - repair to a scratched wheel. Picked up on Monday, delivered back on Friday. You cannot ask for more!

  • TOP CLASS Having met Neil Dobson I was more than happy to leave my car with ChipsAway in Basildon. I had 2 really nasty "dinks" in my bonnet compliments of some brain-dead moron throwing bricks about the place. I had also picked up some sort of a solvent which had removed the top coat of paint from a fair sized area of the bonnet... Read more

  • Excellent service. Efficient and courteous estimating. On time. Slick administration. Repair by Tyler excellent. Felt car was being looked after. Will definitely use again.

  • Lovely old fashioned customer care by Neil Dobson at Basildon, I took my car in for an estimate for minor scratches, Neil rubbed the scratches out in a few minutes & did not want payment, in a world where most people would rip you off, this was refreshing & most appreciated. I would have no hesitation in recommending Neil to others.

  • Chipsaway Basildon .... 5* Took my car to Chipsaway Basildon on a recommendation. Amazing customer service (the ladies on reception couldn’t do enough for me).

  • I have just received my car back from Chipsaway Basildon and I can honestly say that they have done an excellent job.

Within... Read more

  • My lease car is going back in a few weeks and I took to my usual repairer. They wanted more money than ChipsAway Basildon, but only quoted for the work I pointed out. The person from ChipsAway Basildon who did the quote pointed out all areas he thought would be an issue and one he said I could possibly get away with. Including... Read more

  • Chipsaway basildon have been nothing but outstanding. David has been attentive and he has kept to his word.....the car was ready when he said and the workmanship second to none. I would highly recommend this company to anyone.
